This show has been circulating in Steve Wynn trading circles for some time.
All copies that I have encountered have the cut at the end of "Knocking on Heaven's Door" and thus, are all derived from the same master tape. This tape suffers from a number of flaws.
1. There are volume changes in "Send Me a Postacard" and "Knockin' on Heaven's Door".
2. Following the volume change in Postcard, the volume levels were set too high and the bass was much too prominent in the mix. As a result, there is some minor distortion. These problems continue until "Song for the Dreamers" when they were corrrected.
This version is derived directly from the master (which was recorded on very low quality tape), all other copies seem to be derived from Steve Wynn's 1st gen copy.
So, this is definitely an upgrade. The transfer is excellent. There is no clipping and no attempt was made to fix any of the problems with the master tape.
This show took place shortly before the release of the Danny & Dusty LP on A&M records.
The Long Ryders were the headlining act that night.
The personnel is the same as on the LP:
Steve Wynn -- guitar / vocals
Dan Stuart -- guitar / vocals
Chris Cacavas -- keyboards
Tom Stevens -- bass
Sid Griffin -- guitar
Stephen McCarthy -- guitar
Dennis Duck -- drums
During the show Steve Wynn referes to Danny Thomas of the 13th Floor Elevators and says he was the lead guitarist. Not exactly. Danny Thomas was the drummer.
